Hi, need to submit a 1500 words paper on the topic The History of Apple Inc. The history of Apple Company remains a mystery. Many people believe that the growth of Apple Company is indebted to the abilities of its charismatic leader Steve Jobs. Apple Inc started its business with the introduction of Apple-branded computers and soon they diversified into many other areas. They have developed an operating system Macintosh for the use with Apple computers and currently apart from personal computers, Apple sells portable media players, mobile phones, computer software, computer hardware, and hardware accessories. Apple’s growth was gradual and they never tried to introduce too many things in too little time. They studied the market well before introducing a new product and even after the introduction of a product, Apple was able to make necessary corrections their products based on the customer feedback. This paper briefly analyses the history of the company, Apple Inc.
Apple was founded in Cupertino, California on April 1, 1976, by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne (and later incorporated January 3, 1977, without Wayne, who sold his share of the company back to Jobs and Wozniak) to sell the Apple I personal computer kit. They were hand-built by Steve Wozniak in the living room of Jobs parents home, and the Apple I was first shown to the public at the Homebrew Computer Club. The Apple I went on sale on July 1976 and was market-priced at $666.66 (Apple Inc. History, 2008)
When Apple introduced its first computer in the market, it was entirely different from what we call a personal computer now. The users forced to use many other types of equipment to make the Apple computer work perfectly. The Apple team introduced around 200 computers initially into the market. The incorporation process of the Apple Company was made in 1977. Till 2007, Apple Computer Inc was the official name of the company. But because of the huge expansion.
